SMC Networks’ SMC8014-TES DOCSIS 2.0 L2TPv3 Cable Modem Gateway has received Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certification.
The modem complies with MEF 9 EPL and EVPL, as well as with MEF 14 EPL and EVPL.
“We are pleased to see the successful certification of SMC Networks' SMC8014-TES at a time when Ethernet over DOCSIS is poised to significantly expand Carrier Ethernet service offerings in an already rapidly growing marketplace,” said Bob Mandeville, president of Iometrix, MEF’s authorized certification lab.
The SMC8014-TES is a standards-based solution that allows MSOs to support multi-vendor L2TPv3-compliant enterprise concentrators. It supports multiple VPN scenarios, including branch offices, teleworkers, cellular backhauls, SOHO/Peer-to-peer (P2P) mesh networks, and enterprises where the SMC8014-TES is installed at multiple sites and connect to a hosted VPN concentrator, enabling MSOs to deliver Ethernet over DOCSIS services to their business subscribers.
